A few weeks ago, Royal Mail announced their updated prices for 2013. As they had last year- the prices were to increase- however this time (for some parcels) the prices will rise by over 130%.
This seems to be due to Royal Mail introducing a new sizing system for their parcels, whereby there will now be small, medium & large packet/parcel sizes- and pricing relational to these. In addition to this- compensation levels for lost mail will be more than halved from £46 to £20.
While we’re doing everything we can to minimise the costs that we pass on to our customers- these changes sadly will affect our postage costs and as a result our P&P prices will be increasing at the beginning of April 2013.
There’s an e-petition against the changes here– which I’d strongly urge everybody to sign. It only takes a few minutes and it could make a difference.
In the mean time- our current P&P rates will be valid until the end of March 2013- so do feel free to take advantage of these until then- should you be looking to add to your Biscuit Collection!
